Two plainclothes police officers patrolling for drug activity stopped a man in a West Baltimore alley yesterday, and one officer shot him after he grabbed the other officer's gun, city police said.

The officers had been assigned to the area - about two blocks from the Western District station house on North Mount Street - in response to complaints about drug dealing. About 3:40 p.m., while driving a marked police cruiser, the officers spotted a man in an alley in the 1500 block of N. Gilmor St. The officers approached to investigate, a police spokesman said.
